Tower of Power – Week 4 Fantasy Rankings

Tower of Power – Week 4

Weekly Fantasy Rankings

In this regular article, we give you a lowdown of players whose fantasy performances were worthy of our top 20 this week – based on 0.5PPR format scoring.

For the interest of longevity and variety, we have only included the top 6 Quarterbacks in this list. This is to allow other offensive positions spaces on the board. Otherwise, most of the list would consist of QBs! However, we have included the weekly points rank of the players – so you can see where they lie on the overall points scoring for the week.  

Alvin Kamara stopped the Green Bay streak by featuring as Number 1 on the Week 3 chart – but who is it this time?

1. Joe Mixon, RB, Cincinnati Bengals – 39.1pts (1st)

Wow, what a week our Joe has had. After several miserable weeks (even getting called out by our fellow writer Nick), Mixon stormed to the top of the board with a great performance for the Bengals and the fantasy owners that started him. A massive 25 carries for 151 yards and 2 touchdowns for the rushing portion; all six targets for 30 yards and another touchdown. Mixon is well ahead of the pack in Week 4.

2. Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys – 38.3pts (2nd)

Misery and misfortune for Dak and the Cowboys is sweet success for his fantasy owners. A huge 58 pass attempts saw 41 of them connect for 502 yards and four touchdowns. He also carried twice for 12 yards. The sole interception likely saw Dak miss out on the top spot but it doesn’t matter in the big scheme of things. With the Giants next week, things could keep looking good for the Dak fantasy owners. 

3. Odell Beckham Jnr, WR, Cleveland Browns – 35.9pts (3rd)

SNAP! There’s the Beckham people have been looking for. And he wasn’t just satisfied with those 81 yards and two receiving touchdowns (5 of 8 tgts). He had to take an end around and go for another 73-yard rushing score as well. It was a Beckham led destruction of the Cowboys, and he is more than deserving of his place on this list.  

4. Tom Brady, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 33.5pts (4th)

5 passing touchdowns. 5 different receivers. It was an incredible shootout between the Buccs and the Chargers. And ol’ Tom was there at the helm, popping off tuddies. 30 / 46 attempts, 369 yards and 1 interception. Not bad for a day at the office. Those -3 yards on the three kneels may have cost someone somewhere though…

5. George Kittle, TE, San Francisco 49ers – 32.6pts (5th)

What a return for Kittle. A monster game awaited him whenever he returned, and he churned through the Philly secondary to a huge scoreline. All fifteen of his targets were reeled in, and all for 183 yards. Plus he bagged a touchdown on his return. With a lot of injuries in the Niners offense, this won’t be the last time he is here.

6. Robert Tonyan, TE, Green Bay Packers – 30.8pts (6th)

Aaron Rodgers continues to show why he doesn’t desperately need a first round receiver. He’s got his other supporting cast members to do the hard work. The Tight End saw 98 yards and three touchdowns against the Falcons – and even had time for a rolly-polly before catching one of them. It was his best ever game in the green and yellow, and would have been TE1 this week if it weren’t for the man at number 5. Still he is TE1 overall for the season as it stands. So he’s got the bye week to rest and continue that form afterwards.

 7. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers – 29.6pts (7th)

Speaking of the man himself, Rodgers is looking cool, calm and collected. You can definitely not consider this a down season for Rodgers. 27 of 33 passes completed, 327 yards and four touchdowns. What a brilliant start to the season. Now he has the bye week to let the others catch up.

8. Dalvin Cook, RB, Minnesota Vikings – 27.6pts (8th)

Another week for Dalvin in the chart. Another 130 yards and another 2 rushing touchdowns. He picked up two catches for 16 receiving yards as well. You can never get bored of watching Cook play, and those numbers just make him exciting to write about. Compliments to the Cook!

9. Amari Cooper, WR, Dallas Cowboys – 27.4pts (9th)

Someone had to benefit from Dak throwing that ball all over the place. Amari Cooper was the first in line, seeing 16 targets. Catching 12 of them gave Amari 134 yards and a touchdown, which virtually took him the length of the field. Cooper hopes to have another game against a weak Giants offense on Sunday. 

10 . Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Carolina Panthers – 27.2pts (10th)

Teddy has flourished in the leading role, and it’s no surprise to see him on this list. 26 for 37 and 276 yards wasn’t his best yards return but his two touchdowns (one INT) was a season high. He also made a galloping run into the endzone for a score of his own. The Atlanta defense look like a very appetizing option for him in Week 5.

11. Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens – 26pts (11th)

Lamar has been very generous with his carries this year, making sure his Running Back committee has had their fill. But Jackson also ensures he uses his rushing talent too, as demonstrated by his 53 yards and a trip into the endzone against Washington. He was also pretty handy at his secondary job as Quarterback, with 193 yards in the air, two touchdowns and one interception. Next is a Bengals team who have struggled against the run…surely a fantasy gold mine for the QB. 

12. DJ Chark, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars – 25.5pts (12th)

A magnificent return from Chark, who instantly rekindled his fire with Gardnew Minshew, picking up two touchdowns on the way to 95 yards. It will certainly be a relief for the Jags QB to have that connection back, and I think we can expect more features from this fellow before the year’s up.

13. Josh Allen, QB, Buffalo Bills – 25.4pts (13th)

This guy continues to amaze and astound even the harshest fantasy critics. 2020 needed to be a big year for Josh Allen, and he is busting out big time. Another two touchdowns, another 288 yards in the air. And he got another touchdown with his feet. Even an injury scare couldn’t keep him away. 

14. Melvin Gordon, RB, Denver Broncos – 24.8pts (14th)

Looks like Melvin has finally found his feet. A strong volume saw Gordon run 23 times for over 100 yards and even pick up two of three targets on the way. The points from those extra 11 yards could very much come in handy for fantasy owners!

 15. Chris Carson, RB, Seattle Seahawks – 23.5pts (17th)

Carson continues his string of high performance, with another touchdown filled stat line. This time, he ran in those two scores. 80 yards off 16 carries, and 3 of 4 targets for 20 yards, gave him his second 100 yard game this season. Injuries don’t seem to be slowing him down either – he is determined to get those RB1 numbers. 

16. CeeDee Lamb, WR, Dallas Cowboys – 22.7pts (21st)

Like Amari Cooper higher up, Lamb was also the beneficiary of the Cowboys playing from behind. He found the endzone twice in the Browns game, as well as 79 yards off 5 receptions (7 targets). He even bagged a three yard carry – could there be some more rushing upside in Lamb’s future?

17. Adam Thielen, WR, Minnesota Vikings – 22.2pts (23rd)

After a slow start, Adam Thielen and his Quarterback Kirk Cousins are finally clicking. He saw his first double figures of targets this season (10). One of his 8 receptions produced a touchdown. Another one saw him run all the way across to the other side of the field. So those 114 yards aren’t a true reflection of how far he actually ran – It was closer to 200! Such a shame that some of them didn’t count. Onto the Seahawks in Week 5.  

18. Mike Evans, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 21.7pts (26th)

Even while battling an injury, Mike Evans looks good. He brought in seven of eight targets for 122 yards and a touchdown – and was a key mover of the chains for Tom Brady. Hopefully he can suit up for the game this evening, and we can see him on this list again. 

19. Antonio Gibson, RB, Washington – 20.8pts (28th)

This went a long way to answering the critics. Gibson was not known as a ball carrier in school, and his volume suggests he is still working on it. 13 carries only made 46 yards and a touchdown. But it was the pass catching that has helped him out massively here. Five targets, four receptions and 82 yards! His first 100 yard+ game. Amazing stuff from the rookie.  

20. Latavius Murray, RB, New Orleans Saints – 20.8pts (29th)

Latavius Murray caps off the chart this week. While all eyes were on Kamara, his fellow Saints Running Back was running in two touchdowns. The 14 carries that Murray received gained him 64 yards as well as the scores, and he also caught one or two targets for 19 yards.
